What are your thoughts on approaching an intersection with all lanes full of vehicles and a red light.  it is too late to oppose.  how do you handle this?

When all lanes are full of traffic and the light is red. I turn off the siren with the emergency lights remaining active, and stop in a position so that as soon as a lane opens up I can proceed.

Even when I have an open lane and a red light I still stop at the light with the emergency lights and siren on check all traffic directions and then proceed through the intersection. It is my opinon that pushing vehicles through intersections and running red lights is irresponsible.
